Both respective unit counts will be new records for DC since WDCEP started tracking this information in 2001."    That is why on average hundreds of new residential units are being added to the MAR each month.  In November over 900 units were added to the MAR.

Addresses that are lacking an address number (and thus don't have a full address) represent places that do not have an address number, but are included because it is important to identify their locations.   These include places such as the Saint Elizabeth's Power House and the Albert Einstein Statue   These records will have a value of 'PLACE' in the ‘TYPE_’  field.  These records are all associated with an alias names (place name) in the alias table.
